Give a Child a Camera - Bringing Photography to Rural Africa.
Hear the story of how freelance photographer Julian Claxton discovered a small community school in rural Africa, where he fell in love with the children and went back to give them the gift of photography.
In a presentation interspersed with video clips, Julian talks about the project he set up, the benefits it gave to the local community, the journey the children have been on, and how more than fifty children went from never having held a camera to producing wonderfully emotive images of their lives.
